is a UK company which operates from Cardiff, South Wales as part of the HOLDTRADE Group, an International organisation which has been successfully providing specialist services for the railway and mining industries across Europe and Africa over the past 25 years.

Although GB-Rail operates as a small team to remain specialised, being part of HOLDTRADE means our customers enjoy a personal and flexible approach together with large economies of scale, capital backing and market awareness.

As part of HOLDTRADE GB-Rail holds the same value for building long-term customer relationships, both local and international, but has a specific track record for working on successful Light Rail projects within the UK.

Our employees are a group of engineers and international trade professionals with valuable expertise and a friendly approach. The idea behind our company was to further strengthen the growing reputation of HOLDTRADE but focus on Light Rail.

Combining this with our extensive experience gives us a competitive edge, and more importantly helps us build a long term relationship with our customers.
